It is working, perl that is, because it makes it to the second
prompt before giving me my error message - why make a message
when it is already seeing messages? :)

Mandrake install page problem says:
use perl linux_extended_fix.pl on the command line as root
No problem with the above - I have the patch for after the damage
is done below.
After installation, the second windows partition (drive D:) is no
During a non-expert installation, with a non-Linux first extended
partition (ie. hda5), diskdrake changes the extended partition
type to "linux extended" (ie. changes hda2 type to 0x85).
diskdrake tries to use a "linux extended" partition type instead

patch, use perl linux_extended_fix.pl on the command line as
